Letter to the Editor: Support for James Arena DeRosa

Published on

I am writing to express my strong support for James Arena-DeRosa’s bid for State Representative. As a longtime resident of Hopkinton, I know that James is the best choice for this seat.

In my conversations with James, I have found his understanding of the issues impacting Hopkinton to be greatly impressive. He knows what we face – from the rising scourge of PFAS Forever Chemicals, to unfunded mandates that overlook the needs of our community, to mandates and regulations that were clearly created without the input of a legislator from a town like ours.

James Arena-DeRosa not only has this knowledge, but also has the extensive background in public service to deliver results for Hopkinton while staying true to what he believes is right. James started in local government as a member of Holliston’s Finance Committee and chair of the Holliston Democratic Town Committee. After working as an anti-hunger nonprofit’s advocacy and policy leader and the New England Director of the Peace Corps, he was appointed to run all Northeast operations of a large U.S. Department of Agriculture agency, where he oversaw a $12 billion budget.

For these reasons, it is no wonder that James has the support of many major organizations, such as the 350 Mass Climate Action group, the Sierra Club, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the Mass Teachers Associations, the American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts, the Mass AFL-CIO, the Mass Nurses Association, Mass Voters for Animals, the Carpenters Local 336, and the Laborers Local 609.

From one proud Hopkinton voter to another, I strongly recommend James Arena-DeRosa as our next State Representative. He is uniquely qualified for this position and I feel confident in saying he would be an outstanding legislator and friend to our town.
